Overview

Since the publication of the previous edition, our understanding of the molecular and structural basis of electrolyte and water metabolism has expanded enormously. This new edition of The Kidney illuminates these basic science principles clearly and thoroughly while also providing comprehensive and clear clinical management.

This edition has been thoroughly revised and updated. Tight editing and rigorous revision of the chapters, along with elimination of redundancy, have enabled us to return to a two-volume work. At more than 3,100 pages, with over 1,200 illustrations and hundreds of tables, The Kidney remains "highly recommended for anyone active in renal research or clinical nephrology." (The Clinical Investigator; Vol. 20, no. 8, 1992.)

FEATURES:

  • Great for those looking for something substantial on the science behind kidney disease.
  • Takes a pathophysiologic/basic science approach, but includes clinical correlations.
  • New information on the molecular biology of disease processes.
